We was there in a Grey 2014 M4, pretty much stock with CUP's and a map. 7.46 with traffic, car would of gone into the 7.30s on a clear run/flying lap but it was at the edge of the stock suspension!

Back to the 46 next time as its more fun and involved!

That is really impressive time - you were the driver? I think I saw the car as it was on a 14 plate which stood out as one of the older M4s. Only time I saw that car on track was when it overtook me on what I thought was still the sighting laps but it was close to 9am so no dramas.

Yeah that was me - I only did 7 laps as was busy helping friends then got a stone through the charge cooler. First time I've drove a new BMW there, I've done about 35-40laps in my 46 though.

Yeah I was clock watching the iPhone for 9am

Thanks Billy! Back in August, going to ditch the AR1's put either some Trofeo's or Direzzas on so should see a 7:3X easy enough.

I'm booked on at present for this https://circuit-days.co.uk/nurburgring-view-event-102

However, it's now going to clash with a work exhibition, out of interest would anyone be potentially interested? I paid £389.00 so £110.00 less than what the current price is and would simply be looking to recoup my money not obviously make any profit. (Booked back in 2017 hence I paid less whilst booking in advance gave me a good price I didn't know the exhibition date thats usually the 1st 2 weeks of November)

With 2 days we certainly should have a good chance of making it happen

Glad you liked the report
